Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) brought in nearly $1.2 million total for the last fundraising quarter, according to Federal Election Commission forms provided by his campaign.

Tester had $3.8 million cash on hand — a strong number for the incumbent in Montana, where money goes a long way.

More than three quarters of the $1.2 million haul came from direct contributions, while a little more than $200,000 was on the form as a "transfer." Tester's campaign said those transfers came from joint fundraisers with other candidates. The $1.2 million continues his streak of consecutive quarters raising a bit more than $1 million.

Rep. Dennis Rehberg (R-Mont.), Tester's opponent, has not yet released his fourth-quarter fundraising totals. He had $1.8 million cash on hand as of the end of the last quarter, which ended at the end of September.

The two have been neck-and-neck in polls, and outside groups have already been spending heavily in the state.
